Wild slip past Flames 2-1 in shootout

Posted:

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) -- Mikko Koivu scored the winner in the shootout and the Minnesota Wild got their first road victory of the season with a 2-1 win over the Calgary Flames on Monday night.

With each team having scored once in the shootout, Koivu sped in on Leland Irving and made a sharp move to his forehand to beat the Flames goaltender.

Alex Tanguay was then stopped by the pad of Niklas Backstrom, sending the Flames to their eighth straight shootout defeat.

Kyle Brodziak scored late in the second period for Minnesota.

Jiri Hudler scored early in the third period for Calgary, which opened up a three-game homestand with the first in a stretch of six games in 10 days.
